If respondents fill out the forms, won't this cause them to focus on the child's problems instead of the family system?

Answer:  When people seek help for a child, they expect to provide information about the child.  The forms are not likely to instigate an exclusive focus on the child, because data on the family will typically be obtained as well.  The practitioner's own approach and the specific referral problems usually outweigh the forms in determining the degree of focus on the child vs. the family system.
